Pathway of States

NATIONAL CONSTITUTION CENTER - Philadelphia, PA

This is a pathway of nameplates identifying the 56 flags of all the states and territories of the United States.
The 50 state flags begin with Delaware, the first state to ratify, or approve, the Constitution and go all the way around to Hawaii, the last state to join the union.
The 51st flag is the US flag from our nation's capital - Washington DC.
The final 5 flags represent the American territories.

To view the pathway of flags, please click on the image below:

To me it feels, the spirit of that era has gone and being replaced by something more sinister ... just my feeling. .... When are they gonna liberate those prisoners, I mean aliens from space should have the right to freedom too, no wonder ufo's don't land anymore.
